SUBSISTENCE - Suffer Again EP "A Story about Death." Out Now

New Zealand's Subsistence is back in 2020 and more angry and depressed than ever (that's a compliment). I never got into the whole post hardcore of the early 2000's (think of bands like From Autumn to Ashes or Thursday). If they were as good as Subsistence then I just might have. Luckily the band missed that phase and didn't start until 2014. Taking all the good from that genera (heavy riffs and screaming into actual singing) they are a breath of fresh air from your everyday metal band.

Suffer Again is an EP about death. They make no apologies. Vocalist Charlotte Newell can go from growling vocals like Chris Barnes era Corpse, to beautiful melodies displaying the natural beauty of her voice. There is something to be said about women who can mix brutal vocals with something really feminine. This isn't the typical kind of metal I usually listen to, and that is probably why I like it so much. This is raw emotion.
